Common pregnancy complications in the U.S.

Recent reports have unearthed some serious concerns about maternal mortality in the United States. A six-month long investigation conducted by NPR and Pro Publica discovered the U.S. has the worst record for maternal mortality compared to any other developed country in the world.

Who is liable when both the obstetrician and radiologist err?

Liability in a medical malpractice case is not always clear. There are situations when multiple parties are responsible for an error and others where although a number of medical professionals were involved only one bears the responsibility of the diagnosis and treatment.

Common complications with the pregnancy and birth of twins

When you received news that you were expecting more than one baby, you probably felt a mixture of excitement and worry. Many people know that carrying multiples comes with an increased level of risk, compared to carrying a single baby.

What are the risks of having a C-section delivery?

Vaginal deliveries are not as common as they once were. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 1.3 million babies are delivered by a cesarean delivery (C-section) in the United States each year. That is roughly one in every three babies born. However, C-sections carry much higher risks for mothers and babies than vaginal births.

Financial damages high when misdiagnosis leads to wrongful birth

Many people in Arizona put a great deal of thought into the decision to have a baby, and medical information sometimes plays an important role in this decision. The term "wrongful birth" describes a birth that parents would not have wanted if they had received accurate medical information. Legal liability to pay for long-term care related to birth defects could emerge if a physician fails to fulfill the duty to educate parents about a pregnancy's risks and complications.

C-section complications and changing gloves

Arizona expectant women might be less likely to suffer complications from a Cesarean section if medical personnel change gloves before closing the abdominal wall. A study that was presented at the annual meeting of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists found that 6 percent of patients suffered a composite wound complication when clinicians changed gloves versus 13 percent when gloves were not changed.

Birth injuries when babies are too big for vaginal deliveries

Some Arizona women have pelvic bones that are too small for having vaginal births. This condition, which is called cephalopelvic disproportion, may happen because the women have naturally small pelvises, have pelvises that have been made smaller from previous fractures or because they are having large babies.
